I have to start off by saying, "You are entitled to list your items on EBAY for whatever price you want to start your auction at" BUT...
When you are getting ZERO bids, why do sellers continue to REPOST their items at the SAME high price multiple times and pay the posting fee?
I have been buying Serpentors buy the 100's and some sellers have their figure starting auction price over 3 times what the figure is usually sold for. I have tried numerous times to contact sellers for a REASONABLE price and they don't budge. Yet, they continue to repost and pay fees. Sorry... had to vent.

You sad it best when you said that they have the right to post at what price they want to, but I agree when sellers try to highball you.
Makes little sense to me as well, especially since I'm willing to negotiate for over what I might normally pay to bring a price down and acquire a piece I want.

Because they know what you're doing with those Serpentors and it just isn't natural. :P

Playing Devil's Advocate for a moment:
It could be that they were suckers themselves once and can't let the item go for less than they paid for it.
Typically if something won't sell, I'll relist it with a lower price, but this one time I was feeling a little crazy I was selling a Super Go-Bot Psycho in the box. I bought it for $10 and listed it for $10 starting bid with a $20 BIN. Well it had no bids at all so I relisted it, this time for $15 starting bid and $25 BIN....It sold within a day. I still can't explain what happened there

well, eventually someone will buy it. it sounds like you really wanted the item, if so, just negotiate with the seller for best offer chance.. i do it all the time and usually they give in

dude i get offers all the time for stuff im selling, the fact of the matter is that ive been watching figures sell on ebay for the last 2years and watch them go up and go down, eventually someone who doesnt want to hassle with bidding will just buy the figure. thats how it works bro. also i try and list my stuff at fair prices, sometimes i will go up on something just to see if i can get it but its all about making your money man, you cant hate on someone for that but i do understand where your coming from. as buyers we want everything as cheap as possible and as sellers we want to get paid. just how it goes.
