Well, not quite, but pretty close. From the same company that brought us the Alpha Dog, a four legged all-terrain robot, now comes a robot that can walk on two.

From the article on CNET by Tim Hornyak:

Boston Dynamics has released new video of its Petman robot and its resemblance to the T-800 is uncanny.

The [video] shows the anthropomorphic bot (aka the Protection Ensemble Test Mannequin) walking on a treadmill, doing squats, and pumping out push-ups without breaking a sweat. All it needs is a metal skull head and a phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range.
