They'd need first to subdue Megatron, who just killed a few hundred Autobots on the way in, then subdue every single Decepticon attacking Iacon, and hope no one breaks Megatron out in the process. Zeta Prime knew the only safe way to deal with Megatron was to kill him then and there. When your city is being invaded, you can't just capture the enemy leader and expect him to stay in his cell while his army is razing your city. You kill that sonuva bitch on sight.
And yet, Zeta Prime didn't just kill Megatron by activating all the floor pistons at once. Instead he decided to chase him around the room with relatively predictable attacks, while diatribing about his superiority.
Really, Zeta Prime seemed to be the archetype of the cheesy Bond villain.
Plus, doesn't Megatron say that he 'allowed' ZP to call for help, rather than fake the communique like the Autobots assumed? Can you imagine Optimus calling the other Autobots and saying 'hurry and come rescue me from this enemy stronghold full of troops waiting to kill you'?
This guy was not Prime material.
Although the Omega Key switcheroo was pretty funny.
