I have seen originals for sale on eBay. The artwork is copyrighted, so you may not find reproductions available.

We had one made for our display at shows, we also did a set of the pennants on outdoor vinyl. I also did some old posters on out door vinyl. We couldn't find anyone that had one so we could take pictures of it. So we actually found one to buy, not cheap, and in roughish shape. Scanning one is almost impossible as they are so large almost 5 feet tall. Well my sister took about 100 pics of the one we had, and she spent many many hours for me stitching them together and digitally fixing the bad spots. It was missing a toe on one foot so she took the image of the other foot and fixed that, and digitally repaired many tears and spots. We had it printed on like decal sticky vinyl and the printer guy had this piece of pvc? panel stuff that is about 1/4" thick? to stick it to. I think we paid the printer guy $100. a couple of years ago too do that. Rally nice guy, odd duck, but he was lots cheaper than most. It turned out well, I think it was within 1/2" in height of the original, color is slightly off I think that is his printer, getting the colors right from what you see on the computer screen to what prints out is hard to get the same, But we are please with it. I had to make a frame work for it to hold it up at shows.
I will check with my sister, it would be on her computer. I will talk to her, we are hesitant to turn loose of our digital files as that is a lot of work and, NOT saying you, but some people will take your file and start making re-pros with basically no investment in time or money. I am not sure, but it might have to be an in the mail Item on a flash drive as I don't know how big that file is.
Here are some pics of the original and the re-pro.
