I know the Gem V was molded into the F Skewb with extensions. Can we do the same for the other puzzles?

Most of theDayan gems are truncated octahedrons or already truncated in some way. If I understand you question yes you can "untruncate" them. In the case of the dayan gem V it's possible to transform it into a F-skwb because it's a truncated octahedral version of the f-skewb. Same goes for the dayan Gem IV. It's a the truncated octahedral form of a dino skewb.

I am asking if anybody has examples, digital rendering or physical mod, of what these puzzles would look like. :)

the dayan gem 2, if it were not truncated would look exactly like a face turning octahedron, and would turn the corners and the edges Its been done, I will find it later!

There is this one http://youtu.be/59feOabHXUQ which is a un truncated dayan gem II, but it does edge and vertex turning not face. In this video he only show the edge turning movement.
