After a three-year hiatus, Boltman is making a comeback to support the San Diego Chargers and will make his first appearance Monday Sept. 9, said the character’s creator, Ramonan Dan Jauregui.

The Chargers will kick off at 7:20 p.m. against the Houston Texans at Qualcomm Stadium. The game is scheduled to be televised on KUSI-TV and ESPN.

“Boltman has been re-created, re-designed, and is better than ever,” said Jauregui, aka Boltman, describing the character as “faster, stronger, leaner, and more energized.”

And he’s ready to pump up the fans.

“I’m fired up and excited to get back out there after watching our team struggle for the past three years. As Boltman, I have nothing but great memories and winning records at the Q,” said Jauregui, a 1983 Ramona High School graduate.

Jauregui introduced Boltman at a Chargers game in 1996, and retired him in 2009. The suit, he said, took a lot of wear and tear. When he had the new suit constructed in Hollywood, Jauregui said he had the weight of Boltman's head reduced from 18 pounds to 2 pounds.

“He has more of an aerodynamic look. More friendly, but more realistic,” he added.

Boltman has his own Facebook page at


.  Jauregui is asking fans to help him pick one of four pictures, posted on the Facebook page, for a poster.
