Samurai or not, Sandtroopers don't have nipples. Well, didn't. This one does, it seems. Heh.
Here, you can see a photo of an Imperial Sandtrooper figure. The photo was created by Rich Alot from RebelScum.com. Notice how many things are labelled? Notice how not one of those things is nipples? Er, two of those things.
Yet, as pointed out by Topless Robot, here is the samurai-inspired Sandtrooper from Bandai (photos via Tag Hobby). It clearly has nipples. I'm not saying nipples are bad! I like nipples just fine. Heck, I even have nipples. However, Sandtroopers do not.
Then again, they're not usually decked out in samurai garb, so artistic nipple license? And you know what, this figure looks pretty sweet, so whether it really needs these nipples is besides the point.
Samurai Sand Trooper joins the Samurai Darth Vader as part of Bandai's Movie Realization line and was recently shown off in Tokyo's Akihabara.
