It has to be weaponizer, does this mean he is not coming in a Hasbro version?

It is still coming out in the USA. This is an exclusive Golden version for Japan.

No, Hasbro is remembering that they can only charge half of what Takara does at a time when retailers continue to muscle them on cost, and shareholders want more revenue.

Until something in that cycle breaks, you're going to keep seeing Japan only toys in main lines.
