If you look in the docs for RewriteRule, you'll see a special box
discussing the query string.  It tells you that RewriteRule doesn't
match against the query string.  You need a RewriteCond to do that. 
In your particular case, it seems like all you want is to copy the
query string to the new url and add something else.  In that case, the
[QSA] options (for Query String Append) is all you need:
RewriteRule ^/product_category/([0-9]+)\.html
/product_category.php?top_cat_id=$1 [QSA]
