The Control system for that is gonna be a nightmare, its not impossible to make, but keeping the weight down is gonna be the biggest problem (after the control system).

I think just walking upright can't be done so easy with a machine and controls like this. The human brain is making millions of caculations a second to keep us walking and not falling down all the time. We dont have to think about this our body just does that for us.
But our body cant hope to make these caculations for a 18 foot robot it just would not be the same. You would need some program to just keep the thing from falling over correcting its balance and shifting its weight all the time and you just have to worry about telling it where to go.
