Now that is a good use of legos! You can imagine these are holding up just fine. I've seen people make cement molds out of legos so this isn't a far stretch to say the least. Nice pic!

The typical homeowner will try to fix concrete crack repair with caulk. But this is only a superficial crack repair. Water will fill the inside of the crack and cause efflorescence, which will eventually loosen the caulk. In couple years, the caulk will start peeling. An alternative foundation crack repair method is to excavate and patch the crack on the exterior. This may not be permanent because all surface crack repairs will eventually get loose or crack.
