There are other examples of sphinxes, but were there ever any attempts to recreate something like the great Sphinx?

I have seen pictures of rows of smaller sphinxes, but can't remember one larger sphinx associated with some temple or mortuary complex.

true, maybe you'll have to rephrase the question: is there a statue bigger then the Phinx?

I would find it interesting if there was even a Sphinx half or 3/4 of the size of the one at Giza.

To my knowledge there aren't. Short answer, I know.
Maybe geological circumstances like the ones on Giza-plateau weren't easy enough to find.

the sphinx was buried before they found it so there could be another one out there.
