Robotic Nation Evidence blog links this page selling a Korean humanoid robot from WOW Robot. It is only a few thousand dollars, and has extremely fluid movement. I would complain that there aren't many sensors, the computation is probably pretty limited on board, and the movements are all scripted. Also, I’m not sure about the balancing, given the very big feet.

That said, it would be interesting to see what kind of higher level actions could be made from scripted primitives (for those interested in this, you should read about Brooks' Subsumption Architecture).

Also, I shouldn't underestimate the entertainment qualities of this bot. It looks great.
