Well, here are all the possibilities so that we can compare them.
My personal preference is, in this order:


The crosses alone (2) lose the solid look, while in the full square
version (4), it looks like, instead of six pieces, the two crosses are
depicted against a flat background, which ruins the lego metaphor.
As for (1) and (2), the added little square at the bottom (2) renders
the logo more stable, though in the other hand the result is not as
clean as (1).

I can't come up with another framing scheme that maintains the lego
metaphor. To me, those L shapes do not really form a frame, but
are supposed to be stacked along the cross pieces. Your anschauung
may vary, of course :)
