Anybody got any ideas on how to get nipples stuck inside the rim out?

If you mean in the cavity. Just shake it until the nipple falls out of a hole. 5 minutes tops.

That'd be great if I could see them. They are stuck in the void where the bladder was.

Stuck in the bladder sucks - I can't offer any great solutions, just 'I've been there' support.

Good luck.

Shop Vac 4.25 hp sucked them right out and recovered them out of the bin. Stoked. Thanks for all the advice.

This happens to me a quite a bit when I'm building deeper section wheels. For some reason simply spinning the wheel always works surprisingly well for me. The centripital force will naturally force it towards a hole. Of course it'll come flying out so do it in a confined room or something. Once you spin it and it sounds like it has settled somewhere inside, stop the wheel, give it a shake and spin it again. So far this has worked faster for me than simpky trying to shake it out. Good luck.
