You'll find full history dumps of almost all wikis at

Although not trivial, downloading all images is in fact quite easy. You
can find scripts to do that already made. You can also ask Brion to
rsync3 them.
But do you have enough space to dedicate?
How many wikis do you want to mirror? Just commons is more than 3 TB...

That's the reason so few people were interested in the images when the
image dump was available.
