You say you're looking for a mint loose one, then declare you've been offered one which has 'never been opened' for £125. Did you realise that the carded one which had 'never been opened' had in fact been opened and resealed after all, and that the seller was 'mistaken' about that? Because if you weren't, it looks rather like you are asking for the Forum's help in buying a vintage carded figure, so that you can open it to obtain a mint loose one. Perhaps I am wrong, but that's the impression that you give.
You later ask if you can buy one in a baggie. Is your intention to open the baggie in order to obtain the mint loose one you have stated that you want? If so, you might not get too much sympathy here as opening sealed vintage items in order to obtain mint loose ones is widely disapproved of here, and is the reason why U-graded AFA figures are banned from sale on this Forum (in case you don't know what a 'U' grade is, the 'U' stand for 'Uncirculated', and was awarded by the AFA when they were sent carded figures to open and then grade).
As I say, perhaps I am wrong, but you might do well to clarify your intentions, as whilst you are perfectly entitled to do what you like with your own possessions once they are yours, you might find Forum members willing to help you open vintage sealed items quite thin on the ground.
If you really want a mint loose Obi-Wan Kenobi, can I recommend you try something called 'patience'?
Yes you are wrong but thankyou for raising the query in a polite manner. I don't have a spare £500/£1000 or so lying around for a mint carded one hence why I thought being offered one for £125 was a bargain but then I thought that can't be legit can it? I Just want a mint Ben either baggie or loose. I have bought several baggies off members on here all still sealed in my possession. I am trying to widen my chances of getting one by accepting a mint Ben either in baggie or loose version. Or by some miracle a carded one for under £100. I did get a ukg 80 one in the ukg case the other year but it had paint loss on the hands so I sold it on
