Does this exist ANYWHERE ELSE?

Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ λόγος καὶ ὁ λόγος ἦν πρὸς τὸν θεόν καὶ θεὸς ἦν ὁ λόγος.

Does a similar construction (esp. the bolded part) exist anywhere at all in the LXX or GNT?

What you have there is not a grammatical construction but unconnected words from two different clauses (separated by a καὶ) artificially connected. However, the construction ὁ λόγος ἦν πρὸς τὸν θεόν from John 1:1b has it's counterpart at 1 John 1:2 (namely ἥτις ἦν πρὸς τὸν Πατέρα), for starters.

Hope this helps,
