It's a difficult question to answer. First you have to define "mecha." In my mind, yes, mecha are possible. As time goes on we'll have more and more need of such machines.
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.

The term 'mecha' can be applied to most anything that is mechanical. Camcorders, DVD players, even to the obvious ones, like airplanes, to you name it. But a two legged walking mech is entirely possible. Someone recently auctioned off a real, working mech on ebay, and the website is still up and running, with videos: http://www.neogentronyx.com/. So yes, a two legged mech is possible and has been built.
